Downtown Produce Market & More

Great people – Great Food – Great Atmosphere

There are so many things that make Downtown Produce unique.

We are a local, family owned and operated business that has been in Brevard for over 40 years! January 1982 was when this business all began by Gaylord and Jill Aker. Gaylord and Jill Aker actively own and run their store alongside their sons, Ian & Russel Aker. You can commonly find the owners of our store stocking shelves, unloading trucks, and working alongside our staff. Take a look below at our first store that was located on 192 Near Babcock Street. We are now located at 7856 Ellis Road Which is pictured above.

Upon visiting our store, you will be brought right into all the beachy vibes with our surfboards hanging from the ceiling, lit up palm trees, and good ole Jimmy Buffet playing from the speakers above. Being so close to the beach.. what’s a local store without a few palm trees & jimmy playing? It just feels right!

Beyond the aesthetics, you will find a store filled with fresh produce, prepared foods, more wine than you can believe, hand cut- black angus steaks, fresh seafood, gourmet cheese, unique grocery, and so much more. We strive to not only provide our customer with quality products but with affordable prices. We know how important pricing is to the customer and we can assure you-it is important to us as well.

Downtown Produce is a direct receiver of produce from shippers nationwide. Buying this way allows us to cut out the middlemen and offer our customers consistent quality at competitive prices. With fresh product arriving daily we ensure the freshest quality for our customers and the ability to source the most exotic gourmet products for discerning chefs. Take a stroll around our grocery aisles and you will find products from all around the world, as well as, your tried and true favorites.

With a large selection of fruits and vegetables, it’s easy to be adventuresome. If something catches your eye and you don’t know how to prepare it, just ask one of our chefs. If there is something that you want and we don’t have, just ask. Special requests are never a problem.

All of our fresh products are used by our team of chefs who prepare ready to eat, and ready to cook, meals daily. The deli makes custom sandwiches from scratch, and the chefs create unique entrees for our famous hot lunch that is served daily, Monday through Friday from 11am to 2pm. We are the perfect lunch spot to quickly grab your food and head back to the office! If you have a little more time, you can enjoy your lunch on our covered patio outside.

We are the largest bulk buyer of wine in Brevard County, and one of the largest in the state. Therefore, we are able to offer prices that are seldom seen anywhere in this state. We are always looking to pass on more savings to our customers. Buy 12 bottles or more of wine and you will receive an additional 10% discount.

Our staff at Downtown Produce is incredible. We have employees & management that have been with our store for 15 years or more. Long term employees have helped our business flourish and grow over the past years. Our employees are knowledgeable about the products within their departments and are ready to assist you with anything you may need.

To our Long-term customers, Please know how much we appreciate you supporting and shopping at our store. Without you, we wouldn’t be where we are today. To our new customers – Come join the family! We have so much to offer and can’t wait for you to get a taste of what we are all about.

Downtown Produce has a big future planned and we can’t wait to keep growing and offering you MORE! We always say “There is a difference” at Downtown Produce. Come shop with us so you can experience the difference in our locally owned grocery store. Shop Local. Support Local.
